up and down

how people handle sadness? how people can handle anxiety? how people can handle depression? this question are going on my mind lately... i'm considering myself a joyful person but when this feelings attacks me are just don't really know how to deal with it, i mean i could go to the drug store and get a pack of pills but i'm really attacking the root of it? for sure material thing can't fill this sentimental holes, pills would help to regulate the chemistry on my body, and is like all this melancholia are still there in a box with a lock that some "bad feeling" would unchained.... should i focus my feelings on other things and ignore what my body and soul feels? just a merely question that lately pop up on me lately and can't help myself to feel it

the camera...


it comes with the time when stared to value the company, the persons, the moments... and i guess we appreciate it when lost someone loved, we became to revalue all this precious things instead other that may pass to other order or so...
as the year stared, i lost one of my aunts, she kept a lot of thing around her that make her feel comfortable, things that remind her husband and the happy moment she had with him... i know is hard to start something when loss your soulmate and your partner of life, but keeping things around would not bring them back to life, is like she was trying to keep her memory with him, i feel so sorry about her loss... when i was younger (and immature tho) i thought that was absurd to keep all this things around her instead of enjoying what she got in life, like her sister and brother, nieces and nephews but now, i guess i thing different, guess with my kindness, she didn't want to get rid of all this things, she want it to keep them close to her to remember not to forget the one she loved...
now all her belongs are in other hands, some are bringing joy to other people or merely doing the job of what they initial are for
some of this stuff are now in my etsy shop, i'm pretty sure she kept it with care and trying to keep the memory of the one she loved
one of this objects are a camera, full functional, with a film on it, should i took photos and capture moments of joy or just keep it as a something that was bringing joy?? can't decide yet...

in the middle of the sewing...

i won't lie, my classes are freaking cool, although i've got to say that i may probably annoy my teacher, i just ask and ask and ask and seems like all my classmates are very confident or they have more practice than me... i put all the kind of notes and memos and tips and things in order to not forget or mess my pieces...
What i did was recycling a few t-shirts for thongs and briefs and well, some of them didn't end pretty well, i have some mistakes that totally makes me feel so frustrated, and after managing how to cut the fabric and see the pattern and making a full exploration on my undies's drawer i realize how to make them and also that i need to see example (pfff and i thought that was going to be like a puzzle...!)
How this things end it up?, well, i've got 6 pieces of undies (brief, thongs and boxers), still freaking out on "how the hell i'm gonna do the babydoll" and daring myself to do the robes, pijama and night gown.... 

This is like i always do, first comes with excitement, then with confusion and frustration, then with the pressure and at the end with the "oh! i've got that"... (the pics with the gorgeous fabrics are beyond of my range! they are specially made for other occasions, although i drool all over them...)

say a little pray for us...


I barely had a memory of the 1985 earthquake, i should had 3 years old or so... my mom run to the street with my siblings and i and then... 32 years later, same day, is just the same story... i can't hold myself, i saw videos and photos and is hard not to cry when i see people helping to rescue kids and helping each other and see all the buildings collapsed... i still have faith in human kind! i do believe that people are kind and generous,  i do!
If you can help my country and my people please do it! UNICEF and the International Red Cross are supporting with food, medicine and else...
The Topos Tlatelolco is a non profit organization, i already made my donation and i'll support all the rescuers and do my part to help people recover...
I pray for us and i pray for you too..

i'm getting ready...


This week was scheduled for test my workshop... yup i was so nervous about that! not because i'm gonna be in front of 30 kids but because i've got viewers, or should i say critics... and darn! that's the reason that makes me freak out! they will put numbers and reviews and ...!! aaghhhh!!! ....
I need to explain this better... in December, there's one of the most important book fairs (worldwide!, apparently the 2nd most important!...), i work in the children area and this will be my 5th time in row, with workshops that, of course, involves book but art, creativity, imagination and two years ago i beg, and i beg to had Sherlock Holmes workshop (it was so fun! i adore it although i lose my voice tho..) so this year, it totally involves art, illustration and narrative skills, if don't, well that's the idea, the kiddos will learn..
So well, i've got a friend (a partner in crime..) who is helping me to make this workshop go on but also to team up and had fun with kiddos... how ended up my workshop test? i really know a few things, just some adjustments here and there but... this ship is sailing guys!!!
